I used to come here 9 years ago before I moved away from Toronto. Back then the food was stellar. Now the food is still good but not exceptional. Service is lacking and I felt like a pesky customer. The japango roll is still delicious, but there do seem to be anymore innovative dishes on the menu. I suspect that the owner is spending more time at his other restaurant, Yuzu, and Japango is now just an afterthought.

I recommend you go early. This place is small.

Finding a table at this spot requires a big dedication of time and practice of patience. Food makes up for the very tight table spaces and having to share every word with the neighbors. Staff are friendly and can manage take away rather quickly.

Ate here our last night in Toronto. Small, only seats 18 people. Food was excellent. I recommend the tuna avacado tartar, the goyza and the yaki udon. Dinner and drinks for two people $70.

Sushi was prepared fresh and tasted so good! Definitely one of the best ones in town. The restaurant is owned by Japanese people and the service was great too. Only thing is that it is a very small space so tend to get crowded easily. Great place for 2-4 people, it would be hard to fit a large group in there.

Japango is the smallest Japanese restaurant I have seen outside of Japan. Although it is on a side street and very cramped, the food is worth the discomfort. I visit often, and would be a more frequent customer except its always so busy. Reservations are a good idea.
